The Climate Front Line is a show that engages social movement & industry leaders as well as artists. Each conversation changes the narrative by centering the interest and needs of communities at the front line of climate change.
This week is community week, we are going to change the narrative around "Thanksgiving". This is the second episode in a week long series!
Laquida Landford
She is a healer, she loves rice and beans (frijoles black or brown). Her family is from Central America, and loves mangos. She is and is building up an amazing project from the ground u, by focus on housing.
"This is a response to gentrification, housing, capitalism" is how Laquida describes her project, Afrovillage PDX. Laquida wants to build a village that is home to her in Portland, a place that has historically not been the best place for her community.
Laquida is in need of our support, so please be sure to reach out to her and donate if you can. If you are in Portland, or the Pacific Northwest, you could also volunteer to support the project.
